I wish I could remember where I first heard about this devotional book, My Big Book of 5-Minute Devotions. We’ve been reading through these together at lunch most days. Every day is a different animal. They are perfect for lunch: a short blurb about the animal (sometimes quite fascinating!), how some characteristic of the animal relates back to how God wants us to live, then a few short questions and a Bible verse. The illustrations are gorgeous.
Here’s the section on the platypus…
After we read we look up videos about the animal on youtube. I already shared our platypus videos here, so here is a rattlesnake video we enjoyed, we wanted to hear what they sound like. Luckily we won’t run into one here in Australia, but don’t worry we have plenty of other snakes to worry about!
When we are done we take a sneak peek at what animal is next. There are forty animals in all, you can see some more sample pages here. I imagine when we’ve made it through the whole book we will start again!
